The room smelled like stale cigarettes and wet carpet. The bathroom floor was really dirty. I booked the room online for 4 people. At check-in, I was told that they had assigned me a king room. I was charged $20 more to get the room with two double beds. For that price, I could have stayed down the road at... More

So the outside appearance of the motel was fine. The kids were thrilled there was a pool, since temps were soaring into the high 90s. The room had two double beds. The bedding looked clean. We had our own pillows. The room smelled a little musty and took a long time to cool down. The laundry facilities were in a... More

I was glad we brought some pillows along for the trip because the ones provided had blood stains (what it looks like anyway) on them. They were also extremely flat. The room itself was ok, everything appears up to date. Continental breakfast was lacking. There was no batter for waffles. I also found shell casings in the parking lot, not... More

This place is pretty terrible, I work at a hotel in Greensboro NC and I've stayed at several hotels/motels. As far as being the worst I've ever stayed in? This one easily takes the cake. Internet is awful, doesn't work half the time, it literally stops working for hours, not just gets slow but doesn't even work. Corners of room... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week and enjoyed every minute of it.The staff is caring and they try their best to help with whatever you need help with. The rooms are spacious and clean. Me and my husband felt safe and secure. The hotel is quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

I had originally requested 2 nights. However, after entering the room I found the bed comforter with white spots on it leaving nothing to the imagination. I also found hair and the smell of men's cologne on the sheets. I felt the room had not been properly cleaned. I slept in a chair. Also, the rim of the bathtub had... More

I stayed at the ABVI for 2 nights in December 2014 while visiting friends in Shelby and going to the Panthers' game. I paid $48 a night. For the price I was nothing, but pleased. The room was very large and clean. The bathroom was not grand, but larger than other value hotel/motels. As far as visiting my friends in... More

I stayed at ABVI in Shelby because I needed a place to crash over the weekend since I came for a wedding in a neighboring town. The price was great. It was much cheaper than some other hotels around the area, and the room wasn't bad. My only real complaint about the actual room was that the remote for the... More
